Bush Recess Appointments Meet With Protest
ABC News - 1-5-06
... Therefore, the White House believes Bush's nearly 20 recess appointments are valid until the following session, which won't conclude until the end of 2007.

I wish there was a poll to show how many Americans actually listened to a speech given by Bush in the last week.

 Keeping America Safe From Terrorists Toddlers

-Edward Allen's reaction to being on the government's "no-fly" list should have been the tip-off that he is no terrorist.

the 4-year-old boy said, according to his mother.

Unnamed Democrat for Congress?

Bringing courage to the Democratic Party

I am Marc Perkel and I am exploring the idea of running for Congress. I am thinking about legally changing my name to "Unnamed Democrat" because there are a lot of polls out there about election match ups between incumbents and an "unnamed Democrat". The name is something that would create some instant publicity and hopefully will send a message to the Democratic party and maybe wake them up from their deep sleep and give them the courage they lack to speak out on the issues.

Desperate Neighbors

"I hear that Mrs. Cheney is delightful," a disgruntled neighbor, who lives within sight of Ballintober, the Cheneys' $2.7 million estate, told me yesterday. "But I've had great big helicopters fly over my house at 3 o'clock in the morning and at 1 in the morning. I can tell you I'm not happy. They're very noisy. The dogs start barking, and we can't get back to sleep."

The neighbor continued: "When they travel, the Secret Service clears Church Neck Road and prevents people from leaving their property. When they drive into town, people are actually told to stay inside their houses until the Cheneys go by. And I hear that two weeks ago, they told the DNR Police to keep their boats away from Cheney's house because it was ruining his view."

Biz/Tech News

Mr. Bush and his wife were driving in Connecticut and they reached a town named Seymour. They could not figure out how to pronounce it.

Since they were hungry, they pulled into a place to get something to eat. At the counter, Mr. Bush said to the waitress: "My wife and I can't seem to be able to figure out how to pronounce this place. Will you tell me where we are and say it very slowly so that I can understand."

The waitress looked at him and said: "MaaaacDonaaaaald"

“President Bush announced that he was wounded over the weekend by a tree. Did you hear about this? President Bush was clearing brush at his ranch, got scratched by a tree. That's a switch, huh? A tree harming a Republican. When has that ever happened? I guess Bush has cut down so many trees, they're starting to fight back now.”—Jay Leno

In this photo released by the Giant Panda Protection Center, male and female, both 1 year old, known only as No. 19 and No. 16, are seen at the Wolong Nature Reserve Center in western China on Friday Jan. 6, 2006. China announced Friday it has picked two pandas to be offered as a gift to rival Taiwan. Beijing offered the pandas to Taiwan last May in an apparent effort to boost public sentiment on the self-ruled island in favor of uniting with the communist mainland.
